7:06 am
seven percent certain percentage of support. >> he comes after you guys last night. good news, he watches your show. >> everybody watches "the factor," lauer. >> why don't you have knowledgeable talking heads on the show for a change instead of the same old trump haters, boring and he says "o'reilly factor" very negative of me refusing to post great polls including nbc news. fox news not ghod to me. this is a guy who has no problem poking a sharp stick in the eye of the media, his opponents, women. are these the kinds of qualities we want in the white house? >> i've known trump for a long time. he wants people to like him. when people criticize him he takes it personally and then, you know, this machine, the tweeting thing, like the worst thing you can give donald trump is this tweeting thing so i just think this is an extension of his reality show, "the apprentice." this is just theater right now. he gets a lot of attention from the theater. there are a lot of people who
7:07 am
like him because he is the non-politician in a country that's really in trouble, where the other politicians are frightened. he's not frightened so that's why people support him. the personal stuff is a pithal, lauer. >> when you and i get together you predict a lot of things, sub-who likes to look to the future. i'm going to say you're bake here in six month promoting your next book. is donald trump going to be leader of the pack, middle of the pack, out of the race? >> i think he'll be competitive. >> not the front-runner? >> i can't say that with any certainty because there's so many variables that happen, but i think trump has been good for politics in america, and i'm the only one that says that. everybody else is bashing the hell out of donald trump. that's the chic thing to do. he has engaged people and forced them to pay attention and they are paying attention and that is good for america. pay attention! the country's in trouble. >> before you go, let me ask you
7:08 am
carson made the other day about not being able to support or advocate for a muslim to lead this nation. do you agree with that? >> well, i mean, carson believes that the country was founded on judeo-christian philosophy which it was. so if you're a muslim in his mind you don't adhere to that philosophy. you have you r own, so he says that's not a good fitted for america. that's his opinion. he's entitled to it without being branded a racist or whatever. this is what's wrong with this country. we need vibrant debate and stop with the nonsense. if that's what carson believes, that's okay with me. >> and let the voters decide. >> that's right! >> bill o'reilly. >> all right. >> always good. >> i'm coming back, right? >> all right. >> later in the show to talk about his new book "killing reagan," the 43rd in the series. >> all very successful. >> savannah, over to you. guys, thank you so much. we turn to natalie now. another reason the secret

store they's a powerful message about love, self-worth and the importance of women within christianity. trying to open up novel to say was eve really to blame? >> that's part of it. because that's implicit in the story, and that's what we've done historically. >> blame women. >> blame women. >> young, the son of evangelical missionaries says the original scriptures say clearly that the fall from grace started with adam, not eve. one of his recurring and controversial themes is that god is as much female as male. >> i think men are fundamentally mo re lost and i think we're finally beginning to enter a period of time which i think this century will be the century of the woman, not in terms of power but in terms of humanity, authenticity authenticity. >> reporter: young finds hope in pope francis' new more inclusive message.
8:27 am
thanks for his previous book "crossroads." do you find his message parallel or in concert to what you're trying to say in this book? >> it totally resonates, and, you know, the catholic church is a humongous ship. it doesn't turn quickly, and yet you're watching kind of miraculous things happening. >> reporter: in young's own life the blockbuster success of "the shack" was something of a miracle as well. when he wrote it young was working menial jobs that included scrubbing toilets. it's now sold 25 million copies and is being made into a major motion picture starring octavia spencer as god, but young says none of that material success really matters in the end. >> when i wrote "the shack" it was for christmas. i made 12 copies at office depot in gresham, oregon and i went back to work. it was never intended to be published, but before i wrote it, everything that mattered to me was in place.
8:28 am
>> reporter: instead young says he learned to define himself by the strength of his relationship with god and his loved ones. are you trying really to say to men and women return to your relationship with god because that is the only place that you will actually find yourself. >> yes. >> reporter: this is going to happen inside the crucible of real relationships with spouses, with the other, with our children. personhood happens inside relationship. >> reporter: a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, young says it's taken him 50 years to reach a place of peace and self-acceptance and hopes that his books help others on a similar journey. who are you? >> i'm a child. i am pure of heart. i'm kind. i'm gentle. i'm good. i love justice.
8:29 am
to ourselves and to each other. i am thrilled to be human and alive. >> beautiful answer. it's interesting because young comes out of the evangelical tradition, but he says he has a lot of friends who are catholic nuns and really admirers what pope francis is doing in terms of reaching out to women and to changing the narrative on social iswisues. again "eve" was just released and i know it will spark a big debate. it's a novel. it's a notch. he wants to make sure everybody understands that. >> fascinating perspective on life and faith. >> it is, beautiful answer i thought. >> by the way, of course, we'll see you a lot, tomorrow from the white house live as we kick off our coverage of the pope's historic visit. up next, bill o'reilly on ronald reagan's legacy and how an assassination attempt changed his presidency, but first on a
8:30 am
we thought we' d be ready. but demand for our cocktail bitters was huge. i could feel our deadlines racing towards us. we didn' t need a loan. we needed short-term funding. fast. our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. you can' t predict it, but you can be ready. another step on the journey. will you be ready when growth presents itself.
8:31 am
hi. welcome back. along with being a famed fox news host bill o'reilly is also a best-selling author with his popular "killing" series, and today the latest installment, "killing reagan" is out. it explores the career of ronald reagan, his rise to the white house and the impact of john hinckley's assassination attempt 69 days into his presidency. bill, good morning to you. always good to see you. >> oh, it is not, lauer, come on. >> oh, it is. two-for today. we get you twice. >> there you go. >> good news, ronald reagan, one of t theimost talked about, written about, popular political figures in this country's history. the bad news is a lot's been written and talked and said about him. what's new here? what can you add? >> lots new. we've got some new released documents and archives, transcripts of his phone calls with richard nixon, margaret thatcher, things that hadn't been out before, but the take that we have i think is brand new, that after reagan was shot,
8:32 am
whole psychological and physiological makeup changed and nobody in america knew iutt because you didn't have cable then, didn't have a lot of intrusive press then. they kept it quiet in the white house but everything changed. >> so let's go back. 69 days into the presidency john linkly jr. snoots the president. reagan went on to live into his 90s yeah. >> served two terms. >> yeah. >> but people forget not only how close he came to dying and afhiter he survived people thought he wouldn't be able to continue as president. >> it's very close. that's the key passage in the book is there was a day when he came to the oval office and his advisers, top advisers were there, and they were watching him to see if he can handle the discussion that they had set up for him, and if he didn't, they were going to inform george bush the elder he would take over as president because there is an amendment in the constitution that allows that if the president sun fit. so reagan came within that close to invoking that amendment.
8:33 am
>> and you also write about nancy reagan a lot in this book, and you say that while! she was by his side through his battles with health throughout his long life that there was almost a nancy reagan before the assassination and after the assassination. >> it's like three different nancys. the first one is the very, very ambitious actress who -- who gets reagan and maris reagan and notobody shows up for the wedding except william holden. an amazing scene, right? the second one is the diva nancy reagan who becomes an entitled person after her husband becomes governor in california for two times and then wins the presidency, and the third one is the hero nancy reagan who after everybody despises her, not everybody but a lot of people in the white house, rises tv the oc ision and almost singlehandedly cares for her husband as he goes down into the dementia situation. so it's a fascinating portrayal of the woman. >> i mentioned john hinckley jr., a guy being treated for
8:34 am
- mental ininess since hw took that fateful shot. he's getting more and more freedom each year, more and more visits outside the hospital where he has been kept. do you think he should be set free? >> no. >> ever? >> no. >> he trained himself to be an assassin and went to the firearm ranges, he did everything he could. he wanted to kill jimmy carter. he tried to kill jimmy carter. couldn't get him. then he went to reagan. this man -- he could say he's insane and i'm sure he's got neuroses all over the place but society is not better off watching john hinckley walk around. >>.u interesting watching the republican debate being held out at the reagan library in california. how many vand dates evoerked the name of ronald reagan and try to st themselves in the mold of ronald reagan? does anybody in the current crop mind bou of rinalreagan? >> i can't say that they do because i don't know them that well. reagan is the republican icon because his term was so successful. his two terms were so
8:35 am
successful, and that's what the republicans have to look back on. they can't look back on bushes. they look back on reagan, so he is very relevant today, and the candidate who captures the reagan persona, which is almost impossible because he's so charismatic will be the candidate that wins. >> bill o'reilly, the boo is called "killing reagan." always good to have you here. it is, i mean it. i bookend it with that. >> thanks for having me inu uere appreciate it. >> savannah? >> all right, matt. thank you so much. coming up next, kim goldman 20 years after the o.j. simpson trial. what she is doing now to help other families impacted by violent crimes. 'll talk w th kim cnd catch up with her, but, first, this is
8:36 am
i'm michael douglas, and new york is my home. there's no place like it in the world. and there's no time to see it like the fall. take metro north to take in the beautiful fall foliage from high above the hudson. swing a club at one of america's greatest courses... see spectacula sights underground... ...or thrilling sights above it. there's so many incredible ways to experience the fun of fall in new york state. plan your trip at
8:37 am
si rise, it has been more than 20 years since murders of o.j. simpson's ex-wife nicole and heriend ron goldman. it thrust ron's sister kim into the media spotlight. well, now a dedicated victims'
8:38 am
rights advocate she profiles victims and survivors of high-profile violent crimes. in her new book "media circus. can th "kim, ood to see you. >> good morning, thank you. >> you've been on before and told your story and in this book you're telling other stories, other people in violent rimes in this media spotlight. why did you want to tell these storeies? >> stories that haven't been told yet. no disrespect to the media, stories that go behind the scenes of where the media and public members may have been a little insensitive and i want to show people what it's like to grieve publicly and how hard that is and how comforting it can be. >> a inse e look. you talk to everyone, from sharon tate's sister, remember the manson murders and the wife of the d.c. snipere one s ry or anecdote that s od out to you? >> each story was so unique and
8:39 am
each chapter advise i'ded for that family, they all resonate wi th me because they talk about resilience and how you can gain control in a really uncontrollable situation and the power of healing and growth and the process. i love how each member, you know, found their own voice throughout their process, and i -- i just was inspired by every story. >> aren't there common strands when you have a horrible situation like this and for whatever reason it is of interest to the media. it becomes a national story. of what these families go through, that kind of added trauma potentially to what they are already experiencing. >> you know, itohiis each -- each member that i interviewed every family had a unique situation to them because, you know,othe media was different and social media element added, why sometimes certain sto es ro,se to the top and others didn't. there real wane -- we didn't get to the bottom of it. it was just really teaching and lking abohu what their unique experience was. >> tough lessons for the media in this book. >> how to be respectful and sponsible and how to share a
8:40 am
story that's based in truth and not mistruths and, unfortunately, som imes families don't want to always lk to the media so that's when stories that aren't fact-checked kind of rise up and then the families say, wait, i want to tell my story and get back involved so that ying and yang is really hard. >> it's interesting because i thought it was -- it's kind of a batch of mixed emotion in this with regard to the media because some families felt traumatized byul ad the attention a yet s other families were saying i want to tell my story. >> right. >> i want to tell my story in detail. i want the world to know exactly what happe hd to my loved one. >> right, but knowing how and when and having some control over that i think is probably the most difficult part because you always just want to talk and you want to share and it's not always the right time. >> what did some of the families -- i think about judy shepard, the mother of matthew shepard who was the victim of a gay hate crime or eric garner who was killed in police brutality, what did they say
8:41 am
about being at the center of larger social movements? i remember with esah how hard it was walking down the street and people chanting i can't breathe and people thought they were being supportive and for her it was the last words her husband ever spoke and every time she heard it it was traumatizing and once she understood the reason behind it and why people were doing it slowly began to comfort here and judy shepard emerged as a victims' right advocate and wanted to get involved and leave a legacy for her son matthew and that took years for her to do that and how to gain control back. >> so many people know of you, of course, because you lost your brother ron. the o.j. simpson case continues to captivate people. there's even a miniseries coming out. >> i know. >> does something like that bring it all up for you, not that it ever goes away? do you know what i mean? does it in some ways make it more difficult. >> all the families talk about that. even though they are iving their life privately, it's very public still for people.
8:42 am
people are still invest are vested in these stories and in some ways it's great because there's life lessons and lessons to be learned from the justice system. for me it's right here. i'm learning how to use the media and this book and these stories to educate and empower and teach and hopefully that's the good message people get to it. >> the human beings' pain that you're reading about, they are human beings. >> they are someone's pain. >> it's real pain. >> and for community and public, too, they want to be so spottive and we're real people on other side of it. >> thank you, kim goldman. nice to see you. the book is called "media

8:45 am

9:36 am
get help right away for unexpected bleedin g, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not tak e xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . i get out of workpand i go to the store, and somebody' s,psmellin' around, "mmm! i smell cookies." i say, "oh no, you just smell me. i just got out of work. that' s honey bunches of oats, that' s all."
